Deep red color with black fruit aromas with oak and spice nuances. The palate shows tart blackberries and sour cherries, slightly acidic with little tannins. This full body wine had a short finish. A little pricy for OK, nothing special.

Smells like dark fruit, dry easy finish. Good Chianti.

Oak and vanilla are the first scents to come but a nice ripe cherry comes a while after. A pinch of pencil lead too in there? The palate is perfectly balanced with a nice cherry which plays along a noble acid backbone that goes a long way. A nice mouthfeel with some grip, cool rolling tannins that dry the rear of the palate just a tad, enough to bring everything some complexity. Oaky notes here and there too but not overwhelming. They complelent the whole. Nice rather long finish with cherry and vanilla. I kind of like this wine ✌🏻🇮🇹

50th Italian wine in here!

Amazing Chianti from an amazing (and steadfastly consistent) producer! Super cherry with beautiful tobacco and leather notes ends in a super-long quality finish! Dirk now, then drink some more!!

Light for a Sangiovese. Easily pair-able.

Dry and dark, with strong oak (just a touch sharp for my preference) cherry, and lighter earth and leather notes.
